My Lucky Day !!!

Today just couldn't get any better for me as you will already know if you read my earlier post I got a huge present from our Vikki here, and if your were reading my blog some weeks ago you will see that my lovely eldest Son Reid won a bronze medal in the Major International Culinary Challenge in conjunction with The Craft Guild of Chef well today was the finals and I waved him off on the ferry this morning as he went to cook in the final at Raymond Blanc's restaurant "Brasserie Blanc" in Portsmouth He returned this afternoon after claiming second place...... Raymond had remarked it was close between 1st and 2ND but Reid was happy with second place after all he is only 15 years old...............can you tell I am one proud mum tonight (and there will be photos to follow on Monday !! so I will be blogging them proudly as soon as I get my paws on them!!!he he) but not only that Raymond gave Reid his email so that they can try to work out something if possible for Reid to do his work experience in the restaurant and a possibility of a apprenticeship !!!!!
And my lucky day doesn't stop there ..........today I found out I was chosen to be in the fav five in the "Stampin´for the Weekend" challenge also earlier this week I was in the fav five over in the Stamp with us challenge plus I won this weeks challenge at the Creative Card Crew challenge blog so I was happy , Lucky and stunned all at once.
And now I have been given a lovely award by http://www.pausedreamenjoy.blogspot.com/ I am thrilled you think I am worthy of the award Janis thank you so much.
